Los Angeles, CA (October 8, 2008) â€“ Following the success of their debut release earlier this year, The Washington Projects (formerly Souljahz) are pleased to announce the release of their Christmas EP. The six-song release is available now through online digital outlets.
Christmas features three original songs, â€œStay A Whileâ€, â€œThank You For Christmasâ€ and â€œThis Christmasâ€ as well as three instrumental tracks. The EP showcases the vocal talents of the brother and sister duo, Jeâ€™kob and Rachael Washington with a solo performance by Jeâ€™Kob on â€œThis Christmasâ€, a song written for his wife, and Rachael performs solo on â€œStay A Whileâ€.
“Christmas has always been our favorite holiday and season, from what it represents to how it makes us feel,â€ Jeâ€™kob and Rachael explain. â€œWe bump Christmas jams and literally celebrate it all year round so it was only a matter of time before we cranked out some warm and fuzzy goodness for our listeners.â€
The EP is available exclusively through digital online outlets, iTunes, Rhapsody and Amazon, as well as the Washington Projects’ website.
Released in March of this year, The Washington Projectsâ€™ debut project, Commanders of the Resistance has seen great success, garnering critical acclaim from many media outlets. The video for â€œTake it to the Streetsâ€ remained at #1 on the Gospel Music Channel for five weeks and the â€œYou Are My Worldâ€ video is currently in rotation and holding the #3 spot overall, #1 in the Soul Category.
In support of Commanders of the Resistance, Washington Projects were part of the Dare2Share Tour this past year with Hawk Nelson, Sanctus Real, Lincoln Brewster, Stellar Kart and others. In December of this year Washington Projects will go out on a USO Europe/Mediterranean Tour to support the troops. Tour dates will be announced soon.
